Everything Possible - Fred Small

    We have cleared off the table, the leftovers saved
    Washed the dishes and put them away
    I have told you a story and tucked you in tight
    At the end of your knockabout day
    As the moon sets its sails to carry you to sleep
    Over the midnight sea
    I will sing you a song no one sang to me
    May it keep you good company.

    You can be anybody you want to be
    You can love whomever you will
    You can travel any country where your heart leads
    And know I will love you still
    You can live by yourself, you can gather friends around
    You can choose one special one
    And the only measure of your words and your deeds
    Will be the love you leave behind when you're done.

    There are girls who grow up strong and bold
    There are boys quiet and kind
    Some race on ahead, some follow behind
    Some go in their own way and time
    Some women love women, some men love men
    Some raise children, some never do
    You can dream all the day never reaching the end
    Of everything possible for you.

    Don't be rattled by names, by taunts, by games
    But seek out spirits true
    If you give your friends the best part of yourself
    They will give the same back to you.

    [Repeat Chorus]
